The Dell Venue hasn’t been the most exciting device to follow, but it’s actually a nice-looking device that could attract a few eyes sitting on store shelves. Dell’s just put the thing up for order for $500 unlocked.

Dell’s letting customers choose between versions with AT&T or T-Mobile’s 3G bands, so even if you live in Canada no fuss should be made about being able to use this. Europeans also have another option import, of course.

It’s a 4.1-inch WVGA AMOLED device with Android 2.2 that has sprinklings of Dell’s custom Stage UI throughout, an 8 megapixel camera, a sleek design. (Almost Windows Phone-ish, it hurts me to say.)

For performance, it has a 1GHz Snapdragon processor (QSD 8250, we hear), 512 MB of RAM, and 1GB of ROM. (But also has 16GB of internal memory for you to use however you wish.)

If you decide to get it, you can rest easy knowing it’s already rooted and should be easily hackable, but a large community has yet to surround the device.

Be sure to check out the Dell Venue section at AndroidForums.com to get started in conversation about the device that many should soon own. The device should be shipping around February 18th, according to Dell. [via Dell|Buy]
